Dramas at Royal Randwick

Word has come from a trusted source that there could be major repercussions over the guest list at the Emirates marquee during the Autumn Carnival at Royal Randwick racecourse.
A fortnight ago Fadi Ibrahim, brother of Kings Cross nightclub mogul John Ibrahim was a guest in the luxury tent where guests are treated to the best French champagne and a sumptuous buffet with entertainment.

brothers Fadi & John
Although he must be presumed innocent, Fadi is facing an attempted murder charge and was himself the subject of a shooting last year as he sat in his Lamborghini outside his luxury house in Castle Cove . Fadi was wounded several times and his girlfriend once as a hail of bullets were pumped through the window of his car.

As Emirates tries to build it's image in a market dominated by Qantas and British Airways, it seems the Australian Jockey Cub has expressed it's disappointment that such a high profile and controversial figure like Ibrahim should had been included on the airline's official guest list. And the airline's headquarters in the Dubai have said similar. At least one head will roll.

fact : in the past when newspapers wrote about known criminals like the late Perc Galea , the euphemism "colourful racing identity" was the moniker for : a crook !
